The human spine is a dynamic structure built to move with ease and power… until it doesn’t. The spine plays a central role in everything we do from sitting to standing, walking, running or jumping. In this foundational biomechanics workshop, we examine the structure of the spine and learn about key roles the different sections of the spine play in movement and core control. From a movement perspective we look at how to design a spine-focused exercise prescription that promotes optimal function.
- Review and expand your understanding of structural anatomy of the spine
- Build a basic understanding of the spine’s functional anatomy
- Learn to deconstruct the spine’s four major motions to understand the continuum of typical movement impairments
- Discover key exercises to optimize functional movement in all regions of the spine
